“Ninety-Six is a hidden jewel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

If you are planning to visit this National Historic Site, please take a few minutes when you arrive to watch the short film found in the Visitor's Office where the park rangers offices are located. This puts everything into perspective and allows you to get a sense of the importance of this site in our American history. Another suggestion, bring your National Park Passport so it can be stamped at the front desk. (If you don't have one, get one at this office). The park is beautiful, clean and free (unless you care to leave a donation). We're so glad we took a few minutes to visit. Now I know why it was called Star Fort.

“We live here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2012

This is a beautiful park with hiking trails, benches to rest, with lookout stands and lots of explanatory signs about the battles fought there. The park is extraordinarily clean with restrooms, a gift shop, water fountains for humans and doggies. Beautiful walking trails throughout.

“reenactors weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2012

We recently attended the reenactor's weekend at Ninety Six NHS. This park is located in a very rural area of South Carolina. We have visited Cowpens and Kings Mt. so this completed our tour of Revolutionary War sites in South Carolina. The weekend was well organized with plenty of parking for the visitors. There were also children's activities. Our grandchildren enjoyed the demonstrations of cooking and arrow making. They also enjoyed the people dressed in period costumes. The hike to the star fort was easy. The gift shop had a nice selection of books etc. If you plan to visit this site, I highly recommend going during a reenactor's weekend.
